My first basketball game

The stadium

The game

I enjoy watching sports. Not all sports, but some of it.

I think basketball is a fun game to watch. It is fast, exciting and there is constant movement and scoring. I thought watching basketball on screen was interesting enough but in reality, watching the game 'live' is a lot more fun!

I had my first basketball game experience on my last trip to Portland. We were lucky to secure private box tickets! So we had our own room - actually it was our own Nike reserved branded room :P And it was awesome. There was food and drinks and well, although it wasn't a big match, it was a good enough experience for me.

The match was the Portland Trail Blazers against the Toronto Raptors, it is funny how what you experience in a live basketball match is quite different from on television. The latter minuses out the in-between commercials, performances and freebie throw-outs and it's really entertaining.

My favorites included the cheerleading stunts - hey who wouldn't? :P, the dogs' performance - they ran through hoops and jumped over hurdles and were really speedy and cute, the booing of the crowds whenever the Raptors tried to score and it's quite funny watching how they try to distract them! And finally, when Taco Bells gave out free bites after the Trail Blazers scored over 100 points.

I would really love to watch the Winter Olympics some day :)

    I can never get the name right. It's like a tongue twister and I always land up calling it 'Illumination'. This SK2 essence doesn't come cheap…
